This book takes us along on a search for the feminine face of God. We travel with Linda Johnsen for a fascinating investigation of the great women saints of India who manifest the divine in their lives. Together with her we comb the scriptures, meet the holy ones, and are led, step by step, to sit in awe at the feet of six remarkable, contemporary women.

Review:

In The Hindu tradition, God has both male and female characteristics. This fine investigation presents six contemporary women saints of India who are considered to be the exemplification of the feminine aspect of the divine, living incarnations of the Divine Mother or the Goddess. Johnsen, a longtime student of religion and spirituality, not only interviewed these women but also lived and walked among them in the United States and India. The result of her studies is and engrossing and charming book that illustrate the great strength of character and spiritual wisdom these women possess. (A list is provided so that one ca get in touch with their centers in this country.) Useful to informed lay readers and scholars generally, this book is highly recommended for religion collections in both public and academic libraries. --Marilyn E. Schafer, writing for Library Journal, June 1, 1994

With her book Daughters of the Goddess, Linda Johnsen valiantly gives us a shot of enthusiasm, providing an impetus to pursue spiritual treasures. Following Johnsen to India, we get to sit in Hindu homes, listen to tales of women saints immortalized by oral tradition, and wonder what it would have been like growing up aspiring to become divine beings rather than movie stars. What if a wise old woman had taught us not only about mastering a profession or a social role but about mastering ourselves? asks Johnsen. What if we had grown up knowing we were daughters and sons of the Goddess? Backpacking through India, Johnsen introduces us to six women saints, five of which Johnsen personally interviewed. Together with Johnsen, we receive spiritual gems from women mystics who are still quite accessible (with the exception of Anandamayi Ma, who passed away in 1982). --Elizabeth U. Harding, writing for Yoga Journal, January/February 1995
